Out-of-control car ploughs into primary school

AN out-of-control car has slammed through a fence and ploughed into a primary school in Dandenong overnight.

Three men miraculously survived the crash after they lost control of their VW sedan travelling around a bend on Foster Street about 1.50am.

The car careered across the road, smashing through a fence outside Dandenong Primary School and rolled several times before coming to a stop at the entrance of a school building.

Images captured by the Herald Sun show a badly damaged traffic light barely standing and a trail of debris surrounding the school fence.
